Sunday Organ Promenade Recitals

Join us for a relaxing afternoon of popular organ music in the latest of our ever-popular free organ recitals.

On 11 June at 3pm, Geoffrey Woollatt, Sub-Organist at Manchester Cathedral, will perform.

Geoffrey began his musical career as a chorister at Southwell Minster. Subsequently he attended Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester. In January 2007, Geoffrey was appointed as Junior Organ Scholar at Manchester Cathedral, a post which he held for eighteen months.

In September 2008, he became the Organ Scholar at Chester Cathedral. A year later, Geoffrey commenced his studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow. At the same time he was appointed Assistant Organist at St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral in Glasgow, where he played regularly for the choir and was involved in broadcasts, recordings and many performances while he was there.

In September 2012, he returned to Chester Cathedral as Assistant Organist, and in March 2015, he moved to Manchester Cathedral as Sub-Organist where he accompanies the Cathedral Choir and directs the Cathedral Voluntary Choir.

This is a free event and no ticket is required.
